An electromagnetic lock is a device used to control the access through a door. It consists of an electromagnet mounted in or on the door frame and a matching plate that is affixed to the door. When energized, the electromagnet holds the plate with a retention force that may exceed 1000 lbs, thus effectively locking the door. BuyAccess.com carries electromagnetic door locks in a range of holding forces to suit different applications. They are typically controlled through security systems, keypads, key switches, card access systems, 'request to exit' buttons, and/or by special devices worn by persons who's safety could be comprised by uncontrolled egress.

Each 2585 Electromagnetic Lock is comprised of 3 basic components: a lock housing, an electromagnetic coil, and an armature. The coil and housing assembly mounts rigidly to the door frame while the armature mounts to the door in a manner that allows it to pivot slightly to compensate for door irregularities. When the door is closed and the lock is energized the armature is magnetically bonded to the lock face, thus securing the door without utilizing any moving parts. Learn More$194.16
